I am an associate and was recently told that I should start looking for a new position because, due to the economy, our practice is not busy enough. The partners told me they would help me find a new position, keep me on the firm's website, give me good references, and also suggested that I not tell potential new employers that I was asked to find a new position. Of note, I haven't had to sign any type of non-disclosure/severance agreement at this time. My question is this: When I go on interviews (I have a few coming up), do I have to volunteer that I was gently asked to leave, or should I only disclose this if asked? If they probe into my reasons for leaving, I will tell the truth, but I've gotten a lot of conflicting information as to whether I need to volunteer this information up front.
